Genre, Ideology and Intertextuality: A Systemic Functional Perspective
Issue: Vol 2 No. 2 (2006)
Journal: Linguistics and the Human Sciences
This paper considers the relationship among three hierarchies in systemic functional linguistics, realisation, instantiation and individuation, focussing on how these can be used to interpret genre, intertextuality and ideology. The discussion considers four related war stories, especially with respect to appraisal analysis, and argues that a complementarity of hierarchies is needed to interpret their variously interested readings.
